THE STORY WILL KEEP YOU ENTERTAINED   Readers should treat themselves to the timely, home-spun election-season tale. Powell stirs a delicious, literary stew containing a compelling plot; colorful characters; sprigs of Midwestern metaphors; more than a pinch of Washington, D.C. skullduggery; and hearty dollops of common-sense and moral clarity.  The story will keep you entertained throughout.      -Rick R., Georgia   (Read more)

SO WELL-WRITTEN, YOU’LL THINK IT’S TRUE    J. Mark Powell brings to life such interesting characters, in such a masterful way, you’ll forget they are not real.

I’D LIKE TO MEET “TUPPER”   Powell’s book is well-written with a good storyline. Like any good story, you end up rooting for the good guys and hoping that justice prevails for the bad guys. The characters are well developed. Throughout the book you skip from viewpoint to viewpoint, male and female, without losing track of the action or flow.  If only there was a presidential candidate as smart, capable and likable as the one in this book!   -Laura A., South Carolina     (Read more)

GREAT STORYTELLING    Just when you think this is a naïve little tale about how we wish politicians would act during campaigns, watch out for sharp turnsReaders outside the nation’s heartland will learn a few things…about how Midwesterners express themselves, and what they express themselves about.

TELL IT LIKE TUPPER IS TERRIFIC!    Fabulous characters, fascinating tale… I’m already picking who should play the lead roles in the film. Ahhh, if only a candidate today really would tell it like Tupper… he’d have our votes for sure!                 -Shari S., South Carolina     (Read more)
